I am a family practitioner in Norman, Oklahoma. I have been using the Callahan Techniques® for about six months. I was at the causal diagnosis training seminar in June of 1999 and something interesting happened.
I have been very much involved in all the alternative therapies but as far as getting my own self well, it has never been a top priority. Indeed, I had a lot of despair about it. I volunteered to be treated using the Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Scanner along with the procedure so the effect of the Callahan treatment could be evaluated by this measurement.
What I had to confess to is that I had a lot of despair and a lot of depression because I never thought I would find a way that would make me well. Everybody else could be well, but not me. My HRV report reflected my poor status.
Dr. Callahan treated me and in less than five minutes, my depression of over seven years was gone and I had a bright outlook almost beyond belief. My HRV chart reflected this change. It was amazing.
Part II - Extreme Grief
I am particularly interested in having others know about the treatment for my own grief reaction that followed a terrible tragedy. While at the advanced seminar, I learned of my daughter?s sudden and unexpected death. This was my oldest daughter, obviously my pride and joy. We have walked together four nights a week for five or six years. She was a stunning individual. We had been soul mates for quite a long time. She had suffered from chronic connective tissue disease, etc. but died suddenly while I was at the conference. I was devastated.
I wanted to feel the pain and stand into it and was surprised when I spoke with Roger and he told me that it was not necessary to experience such suffering. But he spoke to me most reassuredly that I wouldn?t have to endure that degree of suffering and it was not part of the therapy to suffer (as it so often is in conventional therapies).
I began working with Roger with the Voice Technology and there were eight or ten issues we covered in that first post trauma session. We covered these particularly upsetting issues and to my surprise all of that intense pain was wiped down to just sweet memories and an enormous amount of compassion. I did a whole turn around on my approach to Ann?s death. Because she is gone now, she doesn't have to suffer anymore from all the physiologic problems that she had. Believe me, I am not just using that thought so I can make all the pain and sadness go away. It really doesn?t work during those lonely long nights. What I did find was that all of the thoughts that we worked on were safe from that time on. Now to show you that for each level of the loss of a child like this, unless I know what it is and that it has been treated can still be very painful. One example is the lady who sold her a horse last year had some photos of her and asked if I wanted them. Of course I did - it was a treasure beyond belief. On seeing them it was like being stabbed in the heart.
I called Roger immediately and the VT eliminated all traces of pain within minutes. What I am finding is that each aspect of a loss, or thought field has its own specific problems (or perturbations) and they need to be treated in turn. If these aspects are treated they become compassionate memories within minutes instead of a devastating arrow right in the center of my heart.
I am also aware that the most compassionate advice I get from friends and professional colleagues who are unfamiliar with TFT all say to go into my pain, feel it, and that it will take a year. Well, I found that it doesn?t take a year. It can take only minutes, in fact. At times I wonder, "Maybe I am not being loyal as I should to my own daughter?s death and to her loss, and yet, at the same time, I really believe that people suffer way too long because they have not been exposed to TFT. I offer this in compassion and truth. I know that it goes against the common philosophy of the day. I know that people who offer you these compassionate bits of advice about the necessity of suffering over time, are very well meaning. But, I am here standing in a position to say that I see no need, and no desire to continue to have such pains eating away at me, especially when all of this, I mean all of this, is so easily treated.
Anyone who would care to discuss this may get touch with me. I am on the web at www.doctortalk. I am certainly up for as is Roger and the other practitioners to have you understand this. What a gift to humanity that we could pass through this life, taking a course of caring deeply for whatever treasures you would without having to suffer intensely for years at the loss of such precious irreplaceable treasures.
